Bear Schutz

The annual Made in Clarkdale art show is a unique celebration of the creative spirit in my community.  I feel privileged to participate in this years showcase as both artist and manager.

I am a self-taught artist and work with many different medias.  Currently, I am painting with oil on canvas as well as sculpting with ceramics and wood.   I also build and play music on handmade instruments from re-purposed and up-cycled materials.

My process of creating is organic.  I enjoy the journey of making art as much as the destination of the finished work.

My studio is open by appointment.  Contact me at, or (928) 451-4495.  Some images of my work are available for viewing at .
